Can you believe it has been three years since I started my blog on January 3rd, 2009?!?!? Madness!!! This blog has been through a lot. It basically started out as a hobby that soon turned into my beloved MFA fashion journalism graduate thesis. I have put a lot of blood, sweat, and tears into this blog. After enduring crashes and late nights, fashion weeks and not so stellar fashion events, I met some amazing people, made some great friends, and had some awesome opportunities that would not have come my way if not for this blog. I love my readers, and I am happy to announce that even though I am graduating in May…the blog will live on and continue to grow. In honor of my blog’s birthday, I personally bought these prizes especially for you. I am giving away an 88 Matte Eyeshadow Palette and Travel Brush Set from Crown Brushes. I hope you enjoy!
